    Junior McCants - death?

    Should have been clearer that Junior worked in an aluminum manufacturing plant

    Junior McCants - death?

    I had always believed it was cancer and although I have no evidence to connect the two - his work place was pretty dire and he was regularly exposed to aluminum dust and coal-tar byproducts. The American union movement have pursued some firms for cancer related deaths especially and lung and bladder cancers and respiratory diseases too. But linking his workplace and his death are entirely my assumptions with limited proof. Not been a..

    Rare Motown - No More Tearstained Make Up

    Listening now Pete. Like you say I had forgotten how many tracks had been released. Some of these are new to me and as the wee cat said to the bowl of milk - lapping it up.

    Alice Clark - What Do We Know?

    Read in a Billboard that in 1972 her album was on heavy rotation on only one radio station in USA - WHUR Washington DC. Back then it was the student radio station of Howard University, where Donald Byrd was professor of jazz studies. But for only one station to play her across the whole of the USA is a scandal.

    wow john manship does it again

    My only minor addition is that JM's site is a save haven and less risky than eBay so it sells as a premium to the market, but you get what you bid on (if you win).

    Ultra Rare Modern

    Hi Phil, Just came back to this thread and saw your comment. I was at Black Echoes in the electro era. A package came in from North Carolina with a 12" vocoder dance record - by the Garrett Crew, they had packed the 12" with 3 copies of Glenda McLeod. I rang the company who had already gone bust and were setting up an Amusement Arcade. So for a few weeks I had all three copies, gave one to Ian Clark (100 Club) and another to Dave Tho..

  12. The Amazon blurb says: "It’s January 1967–and one of the worst snowstorms in decades is blanketing Detroit, Michigan. Berry Gordy, owner of Motown Records, is trapped in his home, unable to do anything about the internal war ravaging his most successful group, The Supremes. Diana Ross, Mary Wilson, and Florence Ballard are imploding as Ballard battles alcoholism and the aftermath of rape. But soon, even more chaos will descend o..
  13. Sunnysoul. Fair point. Yes you are right but the book focuses on the legal implosions of 1967 which in the November of that year led to a dramatic legal dispute with Holland-Dozier Holland, Florence Ballard and subsequently Gladys Knight and others....You are very generous to the LA experience. But you are right I should have written "personal and legal disputes that negatively impacted on Motown." Dramatic licence. ..
